A LOOK AHEAD: IDGA Military Vehicles Exhibition and Conference
Expo in Detroit
Next week, thousands of U.S. and foreign military personnel, contractors, program managers, manufacturers, government officials and journalists – your 4GWAR Blog editor included – will be in Detroit for a four-day military ground vehicle conference and expo, sponsored by the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement.
The event at Detroit’s Cobo Convention Center has focused information sessions on July 10th and 13th with the exhibit hall open and a number of presentations on the 11th and 12th.
Among the speakers will be current and retired military officials from the United States, Portugal, Israel, India and the Czech Republic. Also government officials from Canada, Honduras, Lithuania, Mozambique, Serbia, Tanzania and the United Arab Emirates will be on hand to discuss their country’s products, services and needs.
With the end of the Iraq War and Afghanistan winding down after more than a decade, U.S. and NATO military planners are looking ahead to future threats and technologies while trying to deal with reduced funding and equipment worn out in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It should be an interesting show. We’ll keep you posted next week.
